Everyone loves a good story. The intensity of the drama, humor, and love keeps us in rapt attention as the story unfolds. Throughout history humans have told stories, learned through stories, and lived through stories more unbelievable and fantastic than anything that could have been imagined.
When we are knee-deep in the middle of our own story, it’s easy to lose perspective. Especially when that story is the story of infidelity and betrayal.
But here’s the thing – while infidelity or betrayal may be a chapter in the story of your life, it is only a chapter! It is not the complete story. It’s up to you to take control of the narrative and rewrite your betrayal story.
How? Begin by asking yourself is: Who is writing my betrayal story? When something devastating happens, it causes you to feel victimized, because let’s face it, you were victimized! When that happens, it’s easy to turn the story over to the villain and let them take the lead. But in reality, your story is not about the villain, it’s about you!
What would it be like to take back control and start telling your betrayal story, your way? Let me show you how!
- Framing your betrayal story in a way that serves you instead of limits or brings you down.
- Identifying the characters, plot, setting, and main lesson learned from your betrayal story and using those elements to launch into the next chapter of your life.
- Using the “choose your own adventure” framework for making your affair story a catalyst for something good instead of something terrible.
- Why writing and then closing the chapter on your infidelity story moves you powerfully into the rest of your life.
